One hundred years from now, what will you desire? Are you still going to be around by then? I am constantly thinking of what life will be like one decade in the future. It’s a very easy way to quickly put things into perspective for me. It quickly highlights the flaw in my desires and wants in this life.

If you’ve never really sat down to give thought to your entire life, then I’d recommend you do so.

Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away. James 4:14

Shortness of Life

I’ve always known that life is really short. We actually don’t get much more than just a mere 33,000 (or thirty-three thousand) days. When you think about it, it’s not that much time. So, how do we want to spend each and every single day that we have? Do we just believe in randomness and no purpose? Or do we believe for a time of purpose and mission?

Believing in a life of randomness will lead to the conclusion that life must be pursued for all the pleasures possible in the shortest amount of time. Surely a dangerous and destructive way of thinking.

Believing in a life of purpose and mission, however, leads me to the conclusion that life is a journey towards something greater. A belief that uplifts and empowers my spirit.

Knowing that I’ve been given the opportunity to exist means that I have a mission yet to accomplish.
